INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Over 700 officers from multiple law enforcement agencies conducted a large warrant sweep across central Indiana that resulted in dozens of arrests and the acquisition of nearly $400,000 in drugs and illegally possessed firearms.

The officers executed the warrants Thursday stemming from an investigation that began in February of this year. Forty-one people were arrested, and 23 of those individuals arrested are facing federal charges for conspiracy to distribute meth, cocaine and heroin. The 12 people in this photo gallery are still on the loose.

The following was seized in the raid:

  • 19 pounds of meth with a street value of well over $200,000
  • 1.5 kilograms of heroin with a street value of well over $150,000
  • 1 kilo of cocaine with a street value of $20,000
  • $85,000 in drug money
  • 94 illegally possessed firearms

“I’m here to assure you not only as mayor, but as a former federal prosecutor that your neighborhoods and your communities and this city is safer today than it was yesterday,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett.
